Time to Rise
San Antonio's Recovery Resource
June 12, 2019
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams; 
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
"Ode" by Arthur O'Shaughnessy
